MCA Zine Fair is an annual festival featuring hundreds of zinesters, distros, independent presses, and artists. Showcasing over 100 creators of zines, small press and comics from across the country the festival also includes creative workshops dedicated to making, swapping and selling.

Zines – short for fanzines or magazines – are independent or self-published publications informed by the DIY ethos, usually hand-made and of a limited run. They come in a variety of formats and often include both original and appropriated text and images. Topics covered are broad, including poetry, art, personal journals, politics and fanfiction.
